    1. If the "Partners (OAUTH)" account is not present:

      • Check for the presence of an older or manually configured exchange account that may be blocking the "Partners (OAUTH)" installer.
      • These accounts will often (but not always) be named something like Partners, MGH, Work, or Exchange.
      • If an older/manual Partners account is found:

        • Select the exchange account and then tap "Delete Account".
        • A confirmation message will display. Tap "Delete from My iPhone".
        • Once the account finishes deleting, reboot the device.
        • Open the MobileIron Go app

          • Go to the My Devices tab.
          • Tap 'Show my devices'
          • Authenticate with your primary Partners email and login password
          • Select the 'current device' from the list
          • Tap check for updates.
          • Tap continue when prompted to confirm.

    2. If the Partners(OAuth) account is present, but not authenticated:

      1. Tap on the blue 'Re-enter Password' button.
      2. Authenticate via OKTA.
      3. If prompted regarding logging into Office 365 or Apple Internet accounts, that's normal.
